Storyline

Two undocumented, Turkish brothers face the challenges of life in New York City together. Green (aka Samet), the younger brother and a recent arrival to the city, wants to make a fresh start in a new place, but Abi, older and battle-worn, has been in the city longer and knowing the challenges that await his brother wants to protect him. When a street altercation turns into an assault, Green draws the police to the apartment that he shares with his brother and several undocumented Middle Eastern men, unwittingly putting them all at risk of discovery. The result puts Abi and Green against the other residents and threatens to separate the newly reunited brothers. Written by Suzanne Andrews Correa

A New York tale of times we live in
7 October 2018 | by gastondagrivieriSee all my reviews

This amazing short film experience had me engaged from the first moment it came on the screen. The vivid reality that these characters endure in order to survive and make some money in this country, was so visceral so well told through the eyes of their director Suzanne. If you ever get a chance to see this wonderful story on the film festival circuit or you are able to see it online somehow, I highly recommend it. Their acting game is so high that there are no barriers of language, but a global understanding through human connections.
